– We were a bit messy on this rainy Sunday. This is our Rainbow Bubble Sensory Bin. So glad I put B in a bathing suit because she jumped in before I even was fully out the door. This project took about fifteen minutes to make and cost $2.99 (if you have dish soap and bin on hand). B’s face the whole time we were making the bubble foam was priceless.
For each color you will need:
4 tbsp of dish soap (24)
1/2 Cup of water (3 cups)
1 whole tube of washable paint color (6)
– Put the ingredients in a mixer for 2-3 minutes until foamy them pour in bin. Rinse and repeat until all colors are made.
– I have seen several recipe variations but, I wanted to be as cost effective as possible. I found these washable glitter paints at Michael’s for $2.99. The bin was from Lowe’s and it is an under the bed bin. At the time we originally purchased the bin it was $19.98. I use this bin for all of our sensory projects.
– This was a fun first summer project. We are going to complete our second project this week, homemade coffee-ginger soap for Father’s Day.
